I don't know how else to get a message to you, but you must try George's on Blythe Road Hammersmith behind Olympia.
It's a shame you missed it before the facelift, and indeed before George moved on ...
but go when there's an exhibtion build in full swing and see how the breakfasts come out with all the individual care and attention in spite of a queue the length of the cafe. 'Well oiled machine' doesn't do it justice.
Needless to say, it's great when its quiet, too
ps. You might try the Radlett Cafe in Hertfordshire, too, a jaunt from the station


thanks John, I'll check them out. Especially George's - I've been by but never been in.

Heard you on Radio Wales last night and when you mentioned you'd be this side of the Severn over the next few weeks a cafe sprang immediately to mind.
You must try La Gondola on Clifton Street in Roath. It's an Italian cafe that could possibly do with a lick of paint but is absolutely full of characters - Saturday mornings are especially good. The owner Tony is lovely bloke and always up for a bit of banter with the customers. Particularly when his beloved Italy are playing Wales in the Six Nations


Three steps is a very cool place. When I was living in Sydney, always after parties we had to go there.
I really missing this place, where I used to go with my friends Simon and Johny. Now I'm here in Brazil, Simon in Colombia and Johny still in Aussie!
